How do I set up my PT-SINGLE or PT-DUAL control for an RTD sensor?
The PT-DUAL control unit comes with 2 thermistors, the PT-SINGLE with one, but is also compatible with a 3 wire RTD sensor. The diagram illustrates the correct wiring and DIP switch configuration for each temperature sensor wiring scheme. It is important that you also navigate to the Sensor Type screen and select the type of sensor being used. * The PT- CONTROL comes set up for use with the provided Thermistor sensor.
The provided thermistor sensor will work for heating applications where the operating range is between -40°F and 230°F (-40°C and 110°C). For applications that require a larger temperature range an RTD sensor is needed. With an RTD sensor and the PT-CONTROL you can accurately monitor and control for temperatures from -99.9°F to 999°F (-73.3°C to 537.7°C). Tank heating, water basin heaters, immersion heaters or any heat trace application. For more information about installing a 2-, 3-, or 4-wire RTD sensor or the provided thermistor consult the PT-CONTROL manual or installation guide.
